29th November - PSA Christmas Event
A big thank you to our Eastlands for organising a wonderful evening. It was very busy. Stalls, food and drink and the raffle were very popular. Great to see our Eastlands community come out to support the event. A wonderful way to start off the Christmas celebrations!
13th November - Kindness in Nursery
Nursery have been learning about kindness. To help them to understand people’s feelings they went around the school handing out a special heart note and some sweets. They said they saw other peoples faces with big smiles and that made them feel happy too. Kindness is very important! Well done Nursery.

August 2019 - Summer Holidays
Although school is closed to the children, there has been a lot going on. Teachers have moved classrooms, new displays have been put up, there have been building works, our library has had a fresh bright makeover and there has been a lot of work in the school grounds. Mr Roberts has overseen everything, thank you Mr Roberts. Thank you to the PSA who have been in to help particularly in the library. Thank you to the staff, parents and children who helped out with the allotment. On August the 1st, a group of employees from Cemex came to Eastlands to lend a hand for the day. Thank you to Mr Townsend, one of our parents, for arranging this. What a difference a day can make. We are looking forward to sharing the changes with you in September.
